Welcome! My name is Nanette Freedland, and I appreciate you taking the time to visit the website for my private psychotherapy practice in Los Altos, California.
If You’re Looking for Help, Help Is Available
As you’ve come to my website, you may be searching for a lessening of fear, a greater ability to understand and control your emotions, an ability to laugh off criticism more easily, or simply some peace of mind.
You may also want to examine troublesome aspects of your life, fears of abandonment, perfectionism, repetitive dreams, or your relationships with family members, partners, friends, and co-workers.
I have been involved in the counseling profession—helping people reduce distress and dysfunction to achieve growth and positive change—for more than 30 years.
I have helped numerous clients overcome:
- Relationship difficulties with partners, family members, and co-workers
- Early childhood trauma, PTSD, explicit adult trauma events
- Worry about—and trouble with—caring for aging parents
- Difficulties dealing with children moving out of the house (empty nesters)
- Eating disorders and disorders of thought around food, diet, and body image
If you find yourself struggling with any of the above, help is available!
Whether you’re feeling mildly depressed and don’t know why, or are in “one-day-at-a-time mode” and stumbling through one painful day after another, there’s no reason to feel guilty or ashamed.
If you feel empty, or just less than satisfied with your life… If the children, relationships, hobbies, and community activities that used to provide you fulfillment no longer do so… If you’re looking to transition into more meaningful activities but can’t seem to find the motivation to explore your options, a professional counselor can help by providing a supportive and engaging environment in which you can determine and define your goals and work toward achieving them practically and effectively.
I provide a caring, supportive, and confidential environment in which you can safely disclose your inner thoughts and feelings, understand why you’re feeling anxious or depressed, discover opportunities to see yourself differently than you currently do, and create effective, positive, and lasting change.
